Can pop culture help promote mental wellness during the COVID-19 pandemic, or is that just "crazy" talk? Heather Antos (senior editor, Valiant and Image), Bryan Edward Hill (DC Comics' Batman and The Outsiders, Netflix/DC Universe's Titans), Joseph Illidge (executive editor, Heavy Metal, Humanoids' MPLS Sound), and Patrick Tatopoulos (production designer, Batman v Superman, Zack Snyder's Justice League) join forensic psychiatrists Vasilis K. Pozios, M.D., and Praveen Kambam, M.D., (Broadcast Thought, freelance contributors to The New York Times, Wired, The Hollywood Reporter) to discuss how pop culture fandom communities can help stave off social isolation and despair during this unprecedented public health crisis. The "'Crazy' Talk" crew will also discuss the state of mental health media representation and how a mental health/pop culture partnership can be a "win-win" for both the entertainment industry and people with mental illnesses. Moderated by attorney Jeff Trexler (The Comics Journal, The Beat).
